Reviews 94 points Wine Advocate "...reveals notes of crisp Anjou pear, white flowers, orange oil, fresh bread, almond paste and vanilla pod. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's elegantly muscular, with terrific concentration, lively acids and chalky grip, concluding with a long, resonant finish. This is beautifully balanced and built to age. (WK)" 93 points Vinous "...has a refined bouquet with grapefruit, yellow plum and light pressed flower scents that gradually unfold in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with touches of sea salt and quince, again, a wonderful build in the mouth with a twist of sour lemon on the finish. Meursault Villages don't get much better than this. (NM)" 93 points John Gilman "The bouquet wafts from the glass in a ripe and vibrant blend of apple, tangerine, hazelnut, a fine base of chalky soil tones, iodine and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, precise and deep at the core, with a full-bodied format, bright acids, lovely balance and grip and a long, complex and energetic finish. This has a bit more puppy fat out of the blocks than the straight Meursault bottling, but it also has a beautiful foundation of minerality. (JG)"
Domaine Coche-Dury is unequivocally one of the finest estates in Meursault, and one of the most celebrated names in Burgundy. Known for their world-class and age-worthy whites, as well as their highly underrated and infinitely surprising reds, the Domaine is synonymous with outstanding quality. While the Coche family has been making wine in and around Meursault since the 1920s, Jean-François may be the family’s most celebrated member, gracing the label with his wife’s last name, Dury, and raising the Domaine to cult status.
Since 2010, Raphaël Coche and his wife, Charline, have been at the helm of the estate. Following in the family tradition, they farm sustainably, with many of their nine hectares from non-clonal old-vine vineyards throughout Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Auxey-Duresses, Monthélie and Volnay. In the cellar, Raphaël and Charline embrace Coche-Dury’s signature reductive style - where long, traditional vinifications, extended lees contact, and new-oak aging produce vibrant, sumptuous wines.
With only about 4,000 cases produced every year, these are some of the most rare and highly sought after wines in the world.
